After a 10 month hiatus from miniature chairs, I am once again doing what I love. I am in the final stretch of completing the Fan-Back Windsor chairs that I started a year ago. They will be ready for shipping by the end of February.
In December I went to Concord, NH to the headquarters of The League of New Hampshire Craftsmen. There I displayed my miniature chairs to a 3 person jury of woodworking members of the League to see if they thought that my work was of a sufficiently high standard for me to also become a juried member of the League. It was! Thanks to jury members Ted Blachley, Jeffrey Cooper, and David Lamb, and, also, thank you Catherine Green, Standards and Gallery Manager. Two jury comments included with my acceptance letter - "Every aspect of your work is well thought out and successful. The detail is exceptional: incredibly finely scaled work". "The presentation is very professional". `If you are visiting New Hampshire and would like to check out these miniatures they are currently on display at four of the leagues stores - Concord, Hookset, Meridith, and Nashua. More outlets to follow.
